The advantage is that it would always be there. I am thinking that a good bolt thru the center of disc and pad would keep it in place.
The pad I use often is a cheap orange pad similar to the blocks for leveling only much thinner and wider.
This could be used as is in most cases, and if you need even more support, provides a larger target for centering?
Now tell me what I am missing, because I am sure there is a very good reason not to do this.
You dont want to attached a pad to the jack pad. The pad you put down needs to follow the angle of the ground, its might be slight but that lets it "seek it own level "so to speak. When you think you need pads under your jacks isnt that big of a deal to put them under there anyway. I carry enough to have one for each jack and then extra to help level the coach. We boondock alot and camp where the ground isnt level like in a private park.
